Inside the gas tank. you have to unbolt the two straps holding your tank in place, remove all hoses and wires. pull the tank out from under the van, unbolt the sending unit (normally by blots, or lockring) and pull entire sending unit out. the pump is attached to the sending unit.
Well I released my pressure by pushing in the valve near the injectors under the hood. Make sure your engine is cold when doing this. Only a quick spray then its relieved. I unbolted my bed and jacked it about 5 inches and was able to change my 94 ram fuel pump. Pretty easy this way as those straps may need to be eplaced if removed. I did this 2 years ago. Maybe to an hour or 2. But if your truck has been sitting yow may want to drop the tank to clean it out.
This is located on the top/side of the gas tank on the drivers side of the tank. instructions for removal- jack the front left side of the car up, unbolt top bolt that holds the heat shield and evap canister up place another jack under gas tank before the strap. (i use the jack that comes with the car i find it easier) unbolt 1st strap lower the tank down there should be enough clearance to lower half of the tank down without droping the entire thing
I know it can be a bear if the bolts and pins are rusted. Unless the new straps are OEM, some after market straps don't fit quite as well and you need Godzilla strength to manover them into place to get them pinned and bolted back up. You shouldn't have to drop the tank as long as you do the straps one at a time. Get a floor jack, transmission jack or even a motorcycle jack and place wood under the gas tank and do one strap at a time. I used a second jack to help push the strap in place so I could push it into place on a 97 Dakota. Good luck and sometimes it goes smooth but, some times it makes a preacher say things they wouldn't say in church. :)
You have to pull the gas tank out of the car. To do this, first disconnect the ground cable from the battery to make sure you have no power that could cause a spark. There are probably two fuel lines that you will need to disconnect from the tank. A preasure line and return line. You may need a special tool for this that can be puchased from any parts store. It also would be a good idea to syphon as much fuel as you can from the tank. Loosen the two straps holding the tank in and drop it down using a floor jack. Lower it just enough to get to the wire loom and unplug that from the fuel pump. Once you get the tank out, The is a ussually a spanner nut or large snap ring holding the fuel pump in the tank. loosen that and remove the pump from the tank. Just reverse everything for reasembly.
you have to drop the fuel tank out to get to this fuel pump, relativly simple to fix, undo the straps the hold the gas tank up, lower the gas tank slightly an remove the wiring harness an fuel lines going to the fuel pump
Disconnect the filler tube and overflow hoses from the tank. Place a floor jack under the fuel tank. Unbolt the 2 straps holding the tank to the body. Lower the gas tank some, disconnect the 3 fuel lines and electrical connector from the tank. Lower the tank down, remove the lock ring that retains the fuel pump in the tank. It may help with installing the tank, to drain the gas from the tank.
1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.
